The Real McCoy

If you’re anything like The Man From The Hornet, then you’ll probably be blinking into the light around now having gorged yourself silly on the British DVD release of Boardwalk Empire…

… or “Porn For Hat Lovers”  as we called in here on The Hornet the other day. You can buy Boardwalk Empire on DVD by clicking HERE.

This prohibition-era-set drama stars Steve Buscemi as Nucky Thompson, the king of the Atlantic City bootleggers.

In episode one he standing by the docks negotiating a deal to run Canadian whisky into the U.S. The man with whom he is dealing is William McCoy, famed throughout the prohibition era for not watering his hooch – hence the phrase “The Real McCoy”.

In the scene McCoy is wearing a cap not unlike this one…

The McCoy – most definitely real – is on sale at Hornets here in Kensington now and is also available in the online shop in brown, black & white and black.
